Well, obviously it was about the three inauguration balls, :-)  where they were looking at getting people in due to low numbers!!  I can't find a link, maybe it was media gossip.

 

But it was on a website so it must be true....

 

cool

So talk about Polyorchidism wasn't referring to the extravagant floral displays?

Nup, lol.

 

Take the CIA paid audience. I'm sure many of us can do or have done dumb things, but with your country's 300 million watching, let alone the rest of the world.

 

I knew it would be entertaining, that I can quote, posted it here somewhere!

Lots of functions have planted responders in the audience. Some will have planted question askers to get questions flowing. It's not necessarily a bad thing.

$50 tickets, cash bar. I'm sure I read somewhere they didn't sell out either.

And Trump still going on saying that he lost the popular vote because of three to five million fraudulent votes.

 

 


We should all tweet him daily reminding him who won the popular vote. It obviously weighs heavily on him.

Three to five million fraudulent votes is an enormous number. It would have to be a very corrupt nation for this to happen.

Yeah, great idea, let's piss off the most powerful man in the world, known to be vindictive, irrational and unreasonable. Sounds smart!

What kind of fraud? I don't think you can vote in the US unless you are a citizen, which as I understand it, is no easy task.

 

I heard him talking about illegal aliens voting, but I am not sure how that would be possible?

If he's so busy retaliating against everyone who does it, he'll not have a chance to do damage elsewhere. I'd also recommend automating this task for maximum efficiency.

For those of you who think Trump's policies won't affect non-USA citizens, it started already: "President Donald Trump reinstated an executive order Monday barring US foreign aid from going to any nongovernmental organization (NGO) that either provides abortion services, or even discusses abortion with its patients as an option for family planning."

 

 

The reality is simple and brutal. Reinstating the global gag rule will not reduce abortions. Sub-Saharan Africa, for instance, had higher abortion rates after George W. Bush reinstated the gag rule, because it reduced women’s access to contraception and caused more unwanted pregnancies, which women then chose to terminate.

 

The gag rule will, however, lead to more women dying across the developing world. Marie Stopes International, a major global family planning organization, estimates that without alternative funding, the loss of its services alone will cause 6.5 million unintended pregnancies, 2.2 million abortions, 2.1 million unsafe abortions, and 21,700 maternal deaths just in Trump’s first term, from 2017 to 2020. The organization says it will also be prevented from reaching 1.5 million women with contraception every year.
